Washington Wizards Team Report – March 26

=== Washington Wizards Team Report – March 26 ===

(Sports Network) – The Washington Wizards try to stay on the winning track
this evening when they continue their five-game road trip in Oakland against
the Golden State Warriors at the Arena.

Washington put an end to a two-game skid and won for just the third time in 12
contests Thursday night with a 103-94 win over the Los Angeles Clippers at the
Staples Center.

Larry Hughes poured in a game-high 30 points and pulled down 12 rebounds in
the winning effort. Jerry Stackhouse came off the bench to net 20 points and
grab six boards, as the Wizards won on the road for just the second time in
their last 10 tries.

Steve Blake and Gilbert Arenas scored 17 and 11 points, respectively, in the
win. Arenas sat out Tuesday’s loss at Utah because of a sprained ankle.

The Wizards shot 42 percent from the field, including 11-of-26 from three-
point range (.423). Washington drilled 73 percent (22-of-30) from the charity
stripe in the contest.

Washington is just 7-27 on the road this season. The Wizards are also just
5-13 on Fridays.

Washington won the first meeting between these teams this season, 97-79, at
the MCI Center. The Warriors have won three of their last five meetings in
this series.
